i dunno where i should put this.. the ping ingame is annoying most players spam it constantly.. i read somewhere 1 ping is enough.. but for most it aint. how about adding a 30 second cooldown on the ping or even 1 minute

Ehh.... I have to disagree slightly. Multiple pings can be great for showing someone an enemy's path. Since I doubt they'll impliment a pen tool, the best solution to this I can think of is an anti-flood system. If you ping x amount of times in y seconds, you can no longer ping for z seconds.

Edit: This also sounds more like something that should go in the HUD discussion.

just a suggestion, there should be a cool down.. 30 seconds is plenty of time. as i read from one of the sticky posts i think 1 ping is enough. spamming it makes me wanna leave the game or go afk.

Except that during that 30s period, an enemy could get all the way across the map. When you're in the middle of your own battle and don't have enough time to type, pings become a useful tool to warn others.

This- when mid goes to gank bot, 3-4 pings showing path is quick, easy, and informative.

Also, +1 to move this somewhere else. It is clearly a feature that is working as intended, just not how you would like it to work- ie, not a bug.

I fully agree with these guys, multiple pings are necessary for success. However, I am sick of people spamming pings for no reason just because they can. I am in favor of the flood system.
